On September 19, special entourages including President Moon Jae-in, First Lady of South Korea Kim Jng-sook , the leader of North Korea Kim Jong-un and First Lady of North Korea Ri Sol-ju enjoyed luncheon at the Okryu-gwan in Pyongyang. 
 
At that time, ZICO said that he usually eats Pyongyang naengmyeon frequently.
 
When he got asked how it tastes, he said, "I thought it might taste exactly how I thought and expected, which is the maximum of the maximum taste of Pyongyang naengmyeon what I used to eat. However, it was completely different". 
 
Also, "The texture of the noodles is also different but the most difference was we usually accompanied naengmyeon with vinegar and mustard, but Pyongyang naengmyeon adds vinegar, mustard and the special sauce which makes naengmyeon redder" and "It is a bit spicy and different. It tastes amazing".
 
Also, "I thought Pyongyang naengmyeon might be watery, but it wasn't. The taste definitely felt, but it was not sharp pungent. It was a very balanced taste" and "I am very full but I should eat more".
